I explicitly named gays and nothing to argue about.


...nnnnnnnnno

no, that is not how it works. "faggot" in that context is an insult. it is not a synonym.

this is why you probably shouldn't be lecturing English-speakers about what English words mean.


Exactly.

If you think faggot is a synonym for gay you're really lacking the comprehension necessary to tackle how you are being offensive.

Guest should start a death metal band called "Shrödinger TheЯapist", I'm sure he'll find quite the audience for his views.

by the way, is he really right about schroedinger's cat? i thought the point was that there was no way for the observer to know if the cat was alive or dead until you open the box (i.e., make the measurement) - not that the cat itself was both alive and dead. which seems to me to be silly. i mean, they can sleep pretty soundly, but if you poke one, they demonstrate pretty quickly that they are alive. and schroedinger himself specified a mechanism that had an equal probability of killing or not killing the cat. so clearly, he was seeing it as an event that you couldn't know had happened, until you assessed the result.

plus, i kinda like the concept of schroedinger's rapist.

What is it with Guest and Arioch and their fascination with perverted cats. Arioch claims the ones in his country can open doors with their peckers and Guest clearly thinks that cats are to blame for women getting raped.....

I know it is insult. But i cannot say "all faggots are bastard" and pretend i meant bus drivers or pork sellers or any other group but gays. In that sens - as a word determining some group - it is refering to the same set of people.


that is not what a synonym is.
